‘Blair Witch’ tries to live up to 1999 original and continue horror films’ success

Sequels or not, horror films have had an impressive year at the box office, and “Blair Witch” looks to continue the streak this weekend.

“Blair Witch” is a direct sequel to the 1999 modern classic “The Blair Witch Project,” which pulled in $248.6 million worldwide. That film was made for a meager $60,000. “Blair Witch,” like many of its horror flick counterparts, also carried a modest production budget. The film, made for $5 million, is expected to pull in $20.5 million in its debut, according to estimates from analysts at Box Office.
